Use this guide to learn how to register for an SCRC Researcher Account, schedule an appointment, request special collections materials for use in the Breckinridge Research Room, and order digital scans of special collections materials.
Reproductions are delivered as digital scans. Users will need a Researcher Account to request reproductions but do not need a Breckinridge Research Room appointment to view and download.
How Do I Order Digital Scans of Archives Collections?
STEP 1: VISIT ExploreUK
Search or browse UK SCRC's archives collection guides in our digital archive, ExploreUK
STEP 2: MAKE YOUR SELECTIONS
Once in a collection guide, orange "Select" buttons allow you to request retrieval or photoduplication of SCRC's archives materials. Some of these appear for an entire collection, while some appear for individual folders in a collection.
STEP 3: REQUEST REPRODUCTIONS
Once your selections are made, click the "Request" tab in the top right corner of the guide. Then select "Request Reproductions" to switch to the scanning order form.
STEP 4: COMPLETE ORDER AND SUBMIT
Fill in all fields for your scanning order and then select "Submit Request" to send your order to our Research Services team for processing.
STEP 5: TRACK YOUR ORDER
That's it! Once you submit your request, you will be taken to your Research Services Account. If you do not have an account, you will be prompted to register. From your account, you can track all of your SCRC orders and access your completed scans from the "Delivered Orders" menu.
